Rep. Loudermilk: Mike Pompeo an Excellent Choice

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R, GA-11) has issued a statement praising President Donald Trump’s choice of CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State:

“Today, we find ourselves at another pivotal moment for our nation. President Trump’s administration has made progress in dealing with denuclearizing North Korea and voiced plans to reform our country’s trade deals – none of which will be possible without a steady hand directing the State Department. That steady hand will be my former colleague, Mike Pompeo. Mike’s time as a member of Congress and as Director of the CIA undoubtedly makes him an excellent candidate to be the United States’ next world-wide ambassador.”

A steady hand is about all the qualifications he’s got for the job.
Dude’s an Islamophobe, no spy experience before being appointed to CIA last year.
But, he’s a conservative Christian and probably expressed deep loyalty to The President ™.

Dave, what IF, and it’s a huge if, what if Trump gets a deal for denuclarization? Even CNN calls that a potential huge accomplishment. Nobel, start engraving that name.

He’d deserve the Nobel.

As I said recently, I’m hoping one of my Mega-Millions tickets comes in too.

Here’s a prediction. The meeting never occurs unless there’s something hot in the news that needs to be overwhelmed.

Has Trump actually made any deals yet? He’s pretty good a breaking them. The only thing I can think of is the tax cut, which was pretty easy since it’s just a cash payoff before the midterms that is really just a loan from the next generation. Generally, Trump seems to have a hard time accepting”yes” for an answer. He always wants more. Does anybody really believe that Donald Trump would be able to negotiate a nuclear deal with NK, with an inspection regime (from who, the UN?)?

Looks like Noway has nailed old Hillary with this cartoon. She has a set of coconuts to go to India and complain that she lost because of how racist America is. I guess all of the white Klan members voted for the black guy the last 2 elections but came out in full force in their white robes to vote against the white woman! Give me a break. And she says that white women will only vote the way their husbands and sons tell them to vote. Really! My wife would beat my tail if I TOLD HER to vote… Read more »
